    MedComms Networking - 30 April 2019


    This week sees the launch of the 2nd annual Healthcare Communications - Global Salary and Insight Survey, from Paramount Recruitment and supported by MedComms Networking. Once again we hope to provide an invaluable insight into the salaries, benefits, views and challenges within the Healthcare Communications Sector. But we need lots of you joining in. Last year we collected data from 646 respondents and, of course, we're hoping to do better this year. All being well, Daniel Clifton will then present the results at the weekly #MedComms webinar on 26 June (feel free to register now).

    COMPLETE THE SURVEY HERE (closing date is 25 May)

    If you want to remind yourself of last year's results, then the 2018 summary report is freely available and you can watch Daniel talking about those results in a video (15.12 mins).

    If you've questions about the detailed survey data, Daniel will be happy to help you on email

    Please help spread the word.

    Meanwhile, today I've just recorded another three short Writing Bites with specialist writer and trainer, John Dixon, for your enjoyment and education. That's 21 bites so far and we've another three coming next month.

  • Be clear about the different types of dash [4.23 minutes]

  • Using the dash to introduce new information [3.29 minutes]

  • Using the en dash to connect values in a range and for two-word concepts [3.08 minutes]

    The complete series of "Writing bites" is freely available at and on our MedComms Channel on YouTube. We'd love to hear from you if you've suggestions for future bites.

    The future, nay the present, is all about video!

    Tomorrow we'll run the first of our new weekly #MedComms webinars. Everyone's welcome. The more the merrier. It's live and unscripted so I can't guarantee anything, but if all goes well on the day, we'll add the recorded version of each webinar to as we go along. We hope, though, to see many of you join us on the day to ask questions of the specialists we're lining up for you. Again I'd love to hear more ideas for topics and speakers. Feel free to volunteer yourself. Tomorrow we start with Specialising in HEOR/Market Access medical writing with DRG Abacus.

    Please pass word on and encourage all relevant others to join us. Join us from wherever you are in the world.

    There were plenty of useful hints last week for everyone in this recorded talk about using Linkedin for freelancers from the IPSE, the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self Employed.

    (I'm still baffled by anyone in our business who doesn't have a Linkedin profile)

    And, looking ahead, on 8 May listen to Thomas Sullivan, Editor-in-Chief, Policy and Medicine talk with Mohammad Ovais from qordata, when they Examine Trends Over Four Full Years of Open Payments Data.
